Introducing the Exquisite Cattleya labiata var. alba – A Rare Gem of the Orchid World

Elevate your orchid collection with the Cattleya labiata var. alba, an exceptionally rare variety that will captivate your senses with its unique charm. This wonderful species is a testament to the beauty of nature, boasting tall, strong pseudobulbs and vigorous growth that will make it a standout addition to your collection.

Cattleya labiata var. alba is renowned for its mild and pleasant fragrance, setting it apart from other orchids. Its delicate, thin petals exude an air of femininity, making it a truly enchanting flower. With its striking features and exceptional beauty, it's no wonder that collectors covet this rare variety.

Cultivating this remarkable orchid is a rewarding experience, and here are some essential tips to ensure its thriving presence in your garden:

1. Ideal Temperature: These beauties thrive in typical Cattleya temperatures, with nights at around 58°F and daytime temperatures reaching 85°F. Maintaining this temperature range will keep your Cattleya labiata var. alba happy and healthy.

2. Abundant Blooms: Expect an impressive display of 4 to 5 blooms on a single spike, each flower spanning an impressive 5 to 6 inches across. These blooms are not fleeting; they typically grace your space for at least a month, providing a long-lasting showcase of beauty.

3. Dual Growth Delight: Unlike many orchids, Cattleya labiata var. alba offers the unique benefit of two growth cycles in a single year. If it completes its first growth by early June, a second growth will commence before late summer. This dual growth pattern can result in a breathtaking display of blossoms simultaneously.

4. Distinctive Double Sheath: This species features a double sheath, a characteristic found only in the Brazilian large-flowered species Cattleya labiata. It adds an element of rarity and intrigue to your orchid collection.

5. Post-Blooming Care: After the splendid flowering display, it's advisable to keep your plant on the drier side until it initiates new growth in January. Overwatering during dormancy can risk root rot. Instead, provide plenty of sunlight to help foster strong new growth.
